Description:

This paper reviews and critiques the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins. Collins has studied Fortune 500 companies and found that eleven have consistently out-performed their sectors and the overall market for such an extended period of time that he ranks them as great. Analyzing these companies, Collins reports that they are run by modest leaders rather than glittery CEOs, that these leaders select and position people carefully, and then strive for excellence in a steady and relentless manner. This book has been praised by business, non-profit, and religious leaders, but leaves certain questions unanswered.
